How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

  
A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Unable to install SQL Server 2005 SP2 - Unable to install Windows Installer MSI File

  
I have been trying to figure out how to fix this problem for the past couple of days and I was unable to find an answer to my specific problem in the forum.My OS is Windows XP Professional SP3 on MacBook Pro, using Parallels Desktop 4.0. Every single time Windows update tries to install SQL Server 2005 SP2, it fails. I am using Business Contact Manager with Outlook 2007 and SQL Server stops randomly and I am forced to restart the software. I am not sure if it is relevant to this specific problem but I thought I would make a note of this.I have downloaded SP2 and tried to install it locally but that did not work. Here is the error message I get:OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (Build 2600)Package Language: 1033 (ENU)Package Platform: x86Package SP Level: 2Package Version: 3042Command-line parameters specified:     /quiet     /allinstancesCluster Installation: No**********************************************************************************Prerequisites Check & StatusSQLSupport: Passed**********************************************************************************Products Detected                         Language  Level  Patch Level       Platform  EditionExpress Database Services (MSSMLBIZ)      ENU       SP1    2005.090.2047.00  x86       EXPRESS**********************************************************************************Products Disqua

SQL Server Install Materials Cannot Access Windows Installer

  

We are getting the following error when trying to install SQL Server (2005 and 2008) software on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise machine:

"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer in not correctly installed. Contact you support personnel for assistance."

We had installed SQL Server 2005 previously, but are now trying to install other components from the SQL Server installation materials.  We get the same error with the SQL Server 2005 and 2008 installers.

In our reasearch we've found references to corrupt or missing files and incorrect registry entries, and from the advice in those posts we have:

- Reregistered msi.dll
- Reregistered msiexec.exe
- Checked that the image path registry setting is correct
- Compared MD5 values for msi.dll and misexec.exe to those from a functioning server.
- imported registry settings from; Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msisrver, from a properly functioning server

 

but have not been able to correct the issue.

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

  
You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

  
Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

  
Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.
